And what a party it was! Heidi and Maelyn were showered with love...and gifts galore. Maelyn will be going out in style for the first year...so many beautiful outfits.
And of course she will be reading Elmer's first counting book...and thinking of Grandpa!
Ryder was off at the park with Daddy for most of the afternoon...but came home to give cousin Maelyn a little lovin'.
Maelyn was in good company however...five of her little friends came to the shower! They are lined up left-right...oldest to youngest and all within three months of age. How special is that?
And no shower is complete without games. Only at a baby shower is it appropriate to have a speed drinking contest from super-sized baby bottles (there are plenty of those to be found around a dairy farm)! The bottle theme extended to the buffet table...
...where milk for the coffee was served in a bottle.
Thanks to Broni for putting on a lovely buffet! I brought the carriage cake...made following a recipe from the Canadian Living magazine. I have posted the recipe here if you are interested.
